IMHO, and I am not an expert…..a lot of grey. I like more range between really Whites and really blacks…….just my erosional preferences…..:-)

Watchffull, you are right on. B&W in competition must show whites just short of burn out and blacks just short of blocked up. In other words, the full range of B&W tones. Gray images really don't do very well. Ansel Adams set the standard with his Zone System.
